Incubating Health Care Innovations

To remain a leader in the rapidly evolving health care arena, we seek to explore and nurture promising new ideas by formalizing “innovation pathways” for employees across the MaineHealth system to pursue their creativity and passion in pursuit of meaningful innovations in patient care. Two such pathways are the MaineHealth Innovation Cohort and Innovation Center. By partnering with us to provide infrastructure and seed funding for innovation programs, you can help us incubate novel ideas to more rapidly develop and bring patient care advancements to practice.
